Hi All, We are commissioning a new amine gas sweetening plant and want to offload amine (* DOW Ucarsol AP-804) in the amine storage tank from iso- containers. Amine will be sitting in the storage tank( carbon steel) under a nitrogen blanket for about a month. Question is " do we need to dilute the amine with demin water or it can be stored in the concentrated form? "

Hi,

You may want to ring the vendor, reference in the document.

note: It probably takes more than 1 month for the shipment to reach your place. To me the key is the construction material of the storage tank. You should have shelf life written on the COA and/or Contract.

Good luck

Thanks for the response, the shelf life quoted by DOW is 18 months which runs out in a weeks time . However we are a bit away from start up(another 02 months). Don't want to contact the vendor as they may want to sell us a whole new batch( 3.5 MM USD). SO my question is

Do you have access to design documentation for this storage facility? Or tank databook?
